This week saw the official unveiling of our new boss Graham Potter, who spoke to the press for the first time after it was officially confirmed that he would take the vacant Swansea City manager’s job.

Swans fans sounded positive and impressed with Potter’s first interviews, and he did speak very well about how he wants to bring back our playing style and identity.

Read our full article on what the fans thought of Potter’s press conference below:

Swansea Now Need A New Goalkeeping Coach

Swansea City needed a new manager and will also need a number of new players this Summer, and now they also need to find a replacement for goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts, who has left the club to join Chris Coleman in China.

Transfer News & Rumours Round-Up

Alfie Mawson & Lucasz Fabianski

West Ham United are still in talks with us about tying up deals for goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski and Alfie Mawson.

Fabianski could go for around £7m, while the fee for Mawson is believed to be around £20m. Talks are on-going – mainly thought to be around the payment structure.

Fulham £8m Bid For Jordan Ayew Rejected

Swansea City also look set to lose Jordan Ayew this Summer, but while they realise this, they won’t let him go for lower than their asking price. We could get around £10m-plus for Ayew, meaning the Swans could receive a total of around £45m in incoming transfer fees over the Summer. £27m of that from the sales of Fabianski and Mawson, possibly another £10m for Jordan Ayew, leaving another £8m. Andre Ayew is also likely to be sold plus a few others.

Leganes Interested In Borja Baston

La Liga side Leganes are interested in striker Borja Baston, but only if both the club and player lower their financial demands. Read more below:

Sevilla are believed to have first-option to sign Roque Mesa, but Newcastle United, Villareal and Fulham are also interested apparently. Mesa is believed to prefer a stay at Sevilla where he spent on loan last season.

Here was another rumour we saw on Twitter, but we can’t see this one coming true:
